PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 20-35/4 Excellent Condition

US $370

Item Location
Tampa, FL

Item Description
Pentax FA 20-35/4 in excellent condition. Very sharp lens, very compact. Noticeably smaller than the 16-45/4 and lighter too. Excellent for landscapes and as a wide angle walkabout lens. Focuses very well on my K20D. Close focusing, focuses up to about 6" from front element. I've found it to be very resistant to flare.

Includes lens, RBA-58 lens hood (not shown in photos below), Pentax front and rear caps.

goes without saying. Don't take my word for it though, why don't you get one and I'd trade you a 18 - 55 for it...

Thanks for the question and the bump

On the reviews forum here at PentaxForums, here's the ratings for the two lenses:
20-35: 9.30
18-55: 7.30
18-55 II: 8.23
18-55 WR: 7.64

Also, here's Photozone's Lens Performance Survey results for the 18-55 and 20-35 lenses. More stars is better.

Code:
                               18-55  20-35

another thumbs up for 20-35. its worth it. i got it to replace my 16-45 because it is lighter, IQ is wonderful. so even though I have the F28 af, a28,16-45 and da40 the 20-35 seems to be on my k10 90 percent of the time.
